Synopsis: Hank Heywood confronts Ava about the spending habits of the Legends; Mona tries to make a good impression with Ava, but her eagerness gets her and Ava stuck in a cell together.
Review: Legends goes down the road of mini-musical as the crew time travel back to 1928 Paris where they get to meet artistic legends such as F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway, and Salvador Dali.
When Hank takes a look at the finances he tries to get Ava to reign in some of the spending when it comes to the Legends, but when Nate takes him on a mission. Hank gains some insight into where the money goes and even gets to meet a personal hero along the way.
Back on present-day Earth. Ava, Mona and Nora Darhk get to bond while trapped in Nora’s prison cell.
While in 1928 the team enlists the help of Hank, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway, and Salvador Dali in order to capture a Minotaur.
Tom Wilson puts in a wonderful performance as Nate’s overbearing father Hank Henshaw and even gets to sing and play some guitar for a pivotal moment for the episode, which sees the team having to serenade a Minotaur.
Also putting in great performances are Ramona Young, Jes Macallan, and Courtney Ford as Mona, Ava, and Nora as they get to talk and share some time with each other. It proves to be time well spent in that it convinces Ava to bring a bit more humanity to the habitats where they are keeping the magical creatures that the Legends are catching.
This was a really strong showing for Legends. I really enjoyed Tom Wilson’s performance and hope that he gets more screen time in the weeks to come.
I also though the additions of F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway, and Salvador Dali were a lot of fun but didn’t really proved to be necessary to the overall plot of the episode.
